Honor loved ones in Tribute to Courage book & Circle of Roses

Released by Kristi Boyett Cattle Barons' Gala Public Relations C0-Chair:

TYLER, TX - The Tyler Cattle Barons' Gala honors those who have faced cancer with a special display at the Gala called "Circle of Roses." This presentation of hundreds of roses, along side names of those affected by cancer, reminds us of the reason we give to the American Cancer Society.

Tyler Cattle Barons also provide an opportunity to recognize this brave group of people through a special book called the "Tribute to Courage," which is given to all Gala attendees. This book is a culmination of stories, pictures and drawings that tell of a person's battle against cancer.

"This book is a unique and touching way to remember loved ones lost to cancer or is an avenue to celebrate courageous survivors and their families, friends and physicians who have offered support in their fight," said Meredith Roberts, Cattle Barons' Gala co-chair.

For a minimum donation of $100, the community is invited to sponsor a single page in the book to commemorate one person. That person's name will also appear on the Circle of Roses. An acknowledgement will be sent on your behalf to the individual or family of the person you are commemorating. Submissions must be received by March 1 due to print deadlines.

For more information, call the Circle of Roses Chair Claire Leifer at (903) 531-8282 or email Claire@suddenlink.net.  

The American Cancer Society is the nationwide community-based voluntary health organization dedicated to eliminating cancer as a major health problem by preventing cancer, saving lives, and diminishing suffering from cancer through research, education, advocacy, and service.
